    Hi there,

    Could you please let us know what version of Rhino are you using?
    Please note that we haven’t updated Rabbit in a while, so it currently doesn’t work with Rhino 6.

    Thanks for your kindly sharing! It helps me a lot!
    However, I have a question about the boundary of the cell grids.
    I mean, I there any way to control the wrapping?
    Because wrapping can be switched off though to prevent flying geometries, when stacking individual game generations to produce a three-dimensional Game of Life in recording mode.
    Thanks!

    Hello Jason,

    We are glad to hear that Rabbit is useful to you! Unfortunately, there isn’t an option to control the wrapping. A workaround is to create larger grids so that the cells don’t “fall” out of the boundary.

    If you are into coding you can have a look at the source code and try to customize the plugin to your needs: https://github.com/morphocode/rabbit

    Hello there,

    Thank you for your interest in Rabbit!

    We will likely update Rabbit to work with Rhino 6 in the future. Currently, we do not have an exact date, but we will keep you posted.

    Please note that Rabbit is open-source, so you can fork the repository and adapt it to your needs: https://github.com/morphocode/rabbit

    Best,

    Hi,

    I followed all the steps as well and it still doesn’t show up in my toolbars. I am using Rhino 5 that I have just downloaded and installed today, along with the latest version of grasshopper. Any potential leads on why am I having trouble?

    Best,
